Curt Gowdy State Park Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Unknown rock feature southwest of Granite Springs ...
This is a really nice state park just east of Vedauwoo proper. Historically a fishing and boating destination, as it contains 3 reservoirs with lots of trout. But if you take a look around you will notice lots of boulders....
So far, everything that I have done here is all bouldering, but I think there is some possibility for routes as well. I have a feeling some oldtimers (even older than me) have probably done some of it.
From Vedauwoo, continue down Vedauwoo road all the way to Happy Jack Road (Hwy 210). Then go east on Happy Jack for about 3 miles. You will see a sign pointing to the south that says Curt Gowdy State Park.
Climbing Season For the Vedauwoo area.

: ... : Aspen Grove Boulders
Super route with nice movement and and a thin committing finish.Start on the burly side pulling flake and work your feet up on nubbins. Pretty good hold about 2/3 up will lead to a thin side pull. Then another set of foot shuffling lead to a bomber finishing hold (which you can't see at all) in the orange lichen at the very top. ...[more] Browse More Classics in WY

I actually checked with the park superintendent before posting this and bouldering is perfectly welcome. They also don't mind trad climbing. Fixed anchors are not currently approved but may be in some circumstances in the future.

Hey all, I'm down in Fort Collins and am interested in venturing up this way to check out the bouldering. Are there any guides or topos or more general beta on this area? I boulder in the V3-V4 range, so I'd be interested in problems in that realm or below in general. Thanks!
